In 1971 a small group of botanists and horticulturists organised a three month expedition to the Upper Arun Valley region of eastern Nepal. Their aim was to collect seed and specimens of ornamental and economic plants both wild and cultivated in a remote comer of this landlocked kingdom. This book, originally published in 1981, chronicles the travels and activities of the three-man horticultural team.
